This vintage book contains a comprehensive guide to contrapuntal motion. In music theory, contrapuntal motion is the movement of two melodic lines in relation to each other. In standard four-part harmony, it is imperative that the lines remain independent - a result that can be maintained through the use of the four types of contrapuntal motion: similar motion, contrary motion, parallel motion, and oblique motion. Written in clear, plain language and full of interesting and useful information, this text is ideal for those with little previous musical knowledge, and will be of considerable utility to students. The chapters of this book include: Two-Part Writing (Harmony Notes Only), Unaccented Diatonic Passing Notes used Singly, Accented Passing Notes Used Singly, Simultaneous Combined Unessential Notes, Simultaneous Use of Harmony and Unessential Notes, Two Notes to One Combined with a Longer Note, Applied Technique, and etcetera. This book is being republished in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition - complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
